alright. it's going to be a slow build sorry. i'm still working lagistic's ive been gathering these parts for months, years even. i once had tons of parts, but i sold em off as i never used em and than i got this car and i wanted to do audio again, so here i am. I've been working on a dream system around some JBL 660's the top end jbl's. the teir above the 608 GTI's i ran back in 2009. i loved those drivers.
JUST WHAT am i going to run in the rears?!?!?1?
so, i moved on decided the arc was not the direction i wanted. I'm currently am in possesion of the Mmats SQ4070, a Jl audio HD600\4, and a MMats HIFI6150D on the way, so. I wanna run the 6150, and the 4070, bridge the 4070 or biamp some braxial's in the rear's I'm looking at some used 6 1\2" morel braxial's i spoted in the used gear forum. but idk, i Might mount tweeters. i could use some ideas on what to do for the rear. allot of people don't run rear's i've been waiting for inspiration to hit me.
quite honestly, i had a moment where i realized i could run it all off 8 channels passive, or 9 active off stock amp\after market processing, right now i'm going to stick with stock processesing into some victor tube pre amps, but i am only tube pre amping 4 channels, the other 4 I wanna jsut use a normal LOC, but I could use some ideas. i want something quality, but I'm not sure where to go. audio control's has a 6 channel, and i want I can do anything future proof the setup and be able to add 10 channel processing, any amp, any setup. so, I've been considering that. but again room is an issue in such a small car. right now everything is planned be under the driver and passenger seat. the processor\pre amps passenger and amps driver side.
some gear that's come in in the mean while, I got the subwoofer in from germany
finily, turn out it was at the post office for a week and a half. didn't see the slip in the mail.
interesting thing is this is a 90 watt rms rated speaker by German maestro, but the sticker on the magnet says 150 watt RMS. its 295 peak either way, it's going to handle it fine. I may even bridge channels 5+6 on the 6150D, idk like 400-500 watts it probobly does to 4 Ohm i'm not sure.
Some eye candy, the JBL 660's are out of the attic and I was dry fitting them to these baffels i got from a shop in the states. they make brackets for high end car audio in their shop and sell em. happened ot have one for my KIA. they look pretty nice, made out of expanded PVC.
I still need some more deadening materials, I Have 25 SF of some second skin asfault based tiles , relaly nice one s ive had left over for some time. I need some decoubling barrior and I was thinking of doing the whole inrior with 3 layers and a MLV(Mass load vinyl) to deaden and sound proof the whole bag, I think it'll really upgrade the sound beyond what even the drivers can do and I really wanna go all out with this. I need some idea's on where to buy, who to buy from. i hear the comertial\resdential grade MLV is very smelly and maybe a firewall or something but My cars small i can't; really get away with anything like that.
something like this maybe idk but i hear it smells. no reviews
